The 5th & 6th of October 2024

Are you an experienced hiker, and do you like a challenge?

The Challenging routes start at our Walking Village at the Plaza del Mar. Via the beach and the suburbs, you will head towards the mountains, where your climbing skills will be tested. Enjoy the beautiful mountainous nature reserve just north of Marbella and the picturesque village of Ojén to the south. On the narrow rocky paths, you can only walk side by side with two people at the most, so you can focus all your attention on the trees and plants along the way, not to mention the beautiful vistas towards the coast and inland. After experiencing this natural paradise, you walk back to the Walking Village via the suburbs and the city centre.

Push your limits!

Important stuff

What you need to know. These routes are going through a protected nature reserve; there is minimal signage, and the checkpoints with the associated services are only in inhabited areas again. To ensure the safety of hikers, we have a mountaineer rescue team and there are volunteers in the mountains who can lend a helping hand if necessary.

Since this is a more challenging route, you must sign a liability disclaimer:
Liability Disclaimer The start is early, between 7.30 and 8.00hrs. Please ensure you are back before 16hrs to let the day count towards your achievement reward (TBA). 

Limited to
500 hikers

For the first year, we have limited M2DC participants to a maximum of 500 due to safety reasons. We will register on a first-come-first-served basis.

Combine M2DC + M4DW

Would you like to join the M4DW walking days too?

That is possible. For example, walk on Thursday & Wednesday the 10, 20 or 30km routes. And add for the Saturday & Sunday the Challenge Routes. After making your choices, our ticket system will calculate the correct prices.

Food & beverage

We advise you to bring along enough water and food for your hike. You will receive a bottle of water at the start and at some points along the route.

On your way through the city to the mountains, you will find bars and restaurants that serve all kinds of foods and drinks.


Our volunteers will scan your chip at the different checkpoints you will pass. In this way, we more or less know where you are and know that you’ve walked the route altogether.

Your credentials

On Friday the 4th of October, you can pick up your credentials at the Registration tent between 10.00 and 16.00 hrs.

If you also participate at M4DW you can pick them up on Wednesday the 2nd of October.
